, and in 1868 gun control act. their support for that even in the leadership of the nra at the time. charlton heston even subscribe to a statement was read another hollywood tough guy, calling for some kind of regulation to prevent the repetition of these crimes as horrible as these assassinations. but i think with a lot of gun control measures, you support them in california. ronald reagan supported a gun-control measure because panthers are running around with guns in the state legislature sacramento. that's a lot that made it impossible to do that and imposed a waiting period on the time you needed between applying for a hand guns and actually being able to buy it. people say that lott will certainly stop the black panthers, but that law doesn't apply just to black panthers. eventually they backlash. well you know the social and political backlash to a lot of the things that happened and i think gun control is one of them. >> host: the 68 act dealt mainly with prohibited purchasers. so it was insane if you are a felon or habitual drug user or dishonorably discharged, mentally dangerous, th

'm going to say senator joe manchin from west virginia whose flip on the gun issue lifelong nra member, he's carving out that kind of middle ground politics that i think america is looking for right now. and i think we're going to hear more from him. >> good. we'll all be waiting for that. what's his name? >> joe manchin. >> joe manchin. senator from west virginia. >> thanks for the tip. the envelope please? thank you susan. carman -- >> car mac the magnificent. all right we've got here destined for political stardom in 2013. this is definitely conmac. wednesday way la's -- venezuela's hugo chavez. >> stardom? >> you better get the vice president john. >> his populous legacy will live on and become legendary. chavez post will soon replace che question very is at emblems of latin america's social revolutionaries, put that in your column pat. okay, destined for political oblivion, pat? >> president bashar al-assad of syria. if he's not gone by the time this show's aired. >> eleanor? >> sarah palin. momma grizzlies and the tea party, i don't think the new senator from south carolina can save
. >> the n.r.a. blasted in the media for call for armed guard in schools, and guess what, his approval rating higher than the president. so why won't they talk about that? we will next. >> a dramatic new video after deadly plane crash, the act moment a huge jet crashes into the highway. >> can you imagine being na driver? >> oh! >> welcome back, the mainstream media mock being the head of the n.r.a., all shoes should have guards, a gallup poll shows 54% of americans have a favorable opinion of the national rifle association. why is the mainstream media so harsh on them? joining us now is a contributor to the daily collar, good morning to you jeff. >> good morning, thanks for having me on. >> i would say so. and it's a little rough on the n.r.a., but if you look at the overall approval rating, they think higher than president obama and higher than the media covering as well. >> dave: maybe the speech from wayne lapierre didn't represent perfectly members of the n.r.a. i know, some weren't happy about maybe the lack of consoling to the victims and maybe some sensible proposal for some sort of
and magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition. why is that more effective than the nra proposal to put armed guards in every school? >> elwith, in the first place, we -- one third of america's public schools does have armed guards. secondly, there were armed guards at columbine. they couldn't stop the shooters. so the question comes what do we do about the growing sophistication of military weapons on the streets of our cities. there aren't good hunting weapons, no hunter in my view worth his or her salt would use an assault weapon to hunt and they are not necessarily good defensive weapons. what we would do is take the earlier bill and strengthen it in many ways is. prevent the gun manufacturers from getting around it as they did, go to a one physical characteristic test. take specific models and ban their manufacture, their sale and their transfer. and take the weapons that are are grandfathered that are in possession now and put them under the federal firearms act so that they would be licensed, there would be background checks done. bite the bulletuy the the of what the inci
? that's what the nra believes. they told me last week that could work. >> you know, i'm not going to prejudge the recommendations that are given to me. i am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. and i think the vast majority of the american people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem. and, look, here's the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn having now been in this office for four years is, you know, the old adage of abraham lincoln's that with public opinion there's nothing you can't do. and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. so i'm going to be putting forward a package, and i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it. and i'm going to be making an argument to the american people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at sandy hook elementa
a legislative vote. for now it looks like the nra and wayne lapierre have not been invited by vice president biden to talk about ways to reduce gun violence. according to the nra's president david keene there's been no contact from the white house to include them in this process. piers morgan has penned an op-ed for those who want to see him deported for his views on gun control saying although i love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, i would as a concerned parent first seriously consider deporting myself. and actor charlie sheen is at it again, but this time he has company. on saturday sheen sent out this tweet to the mayor of l.a. who knows how to party. tweeted a picture of sheen and the mayor of l.a. at a rooftop bar in mexico and it was only a matter of time.

than the nra proposal to put armed guards in every school? >> well in the first place, 1/3 of america's public schools does have armed guards. secondly, there were armed guards at columbine, they couldn't stop the shooters. so, the question comes, what do we do about the growing sophistication of military weapons on the streets of our cities? they aren't good hunting weapons, no hunter worth their salt would use an assault weapon to hunt, and, what we'd do is take the earlier bill and strengthen it in many ways, prevent the gun manufacturers, from getting around it as they did. go to a one physical characteristic test and take specific models and ban mayor manufacture, sale and transfer and take the weapons that are grandfathered, that are in possession now, and put them under the federal firearms act. so that they would be licensed, there would be background checks down. america has to bite the bullet of what these incidents mean to our people, to our nation, and our nation's standing in the world. when you have someone walking in and flaying in the most brutal way, 6-year-olds, some
this particular prop during an interview with the head of the nra. >> so, here is a magazine for ammunition that carries 30 bullets. now, isn't it possible that if we got rid of these, if we replaced them and said, well, you can only have a magazine that carries five bullets or ten bullets, isn't it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like newtown? >> i don't believe that is going to make one difference. >> why are some gun owners rooting for gregory to be locked up? should a new york newspaper published a map showing the homes of gun owners. the media in the middle of a debate. tomorrow is the last day to avoid what the press has described as an almost apocalyptic outcome. >> to avoid the fiscal cliff -- >> if we go over the fiscal cliff -- >> try to avert the fiscal cliff. >> the clock ticks down to the so-called fiscal cliff. >> closer than ever going over the fiscal cliff. >> the fiscal cliff negotiations are going no where. >> president obama may not have gotten a fiscal cliff deal, but keeping up the media pressure this sunday morning with an interview op"mee
, the nra has a is ingu lar focus and a -- singular focus and long memory and you cannot say that about the public at large. >> the task of getting them specific legislative resolutions by the state of the union, you can expect he will come out with specifics, i bet they will have a bill by february. is momentum gone by then. >> there will never be more votes for that bill than the day after that shooting. >> what do you think? >> like on the hill -- >> he was resigned, no, no one wants to talk about it on the hill on either side. he was resigned about how congress is broken and he does the best he can and he expects grass roots energy from americans on these issues, that they find the most important. he's -- he doesn't say i'm powerless but you change washington from the outside, not from the inside. he's urging the public to get involved. it is a huge fight and not one he knows he can win. we're going to stay on the cliff for a few more months and he doesn't know what he can get started. >> the final question next, is the debt ceiling. i mean that could happen as early as -- it's alre
think garland is right. it does play into the fear factor. what the left is forgetting, the nra has a higher approval rating than both president and congress. i think this is going to be backfire them. i think a lot of people are very upset and people think it's really wrong, but if we have to make a law to prevent people from doing things like this and using public information of people that are not done anything wrong and exercising their rights and use that information trying to harm them, maybe we do have to do that. >> arthel: they are saying that the damage has been done, it's too late you can't take it back there. the information is out there. what do you think the neighbors will respond? if there is a possibility of is on tra sizing those people that are legally holding guns? >> i don't think it's going to be make a difference. i don't think people are going to search through 10,000 names. apparently they have 20,000 or 30,000 names. i don't think people are going to take the time to look. it's an exercise in futility. we've got our feud going on. what next? do we have a con
you. i can hear you talking. >> that was a bad moment. >> if i heard the news correctly, the nra disappeared the young staffer. >> unless he was the one who wrote the bayonet joke then maybe there's forgiveness. there was another great moment i thought the president had in the second debate when he did the get the transcript moment. let's watch the president doing that. >> get the transcript. >> he did. >> can you say that louder candy? >> say it louder, candy. >> here is why it was amazing. some news shows, that aren't this news show refused to get the transcript. they called her out for being bias for reading words that happened. some news shows bring on the democrat and the republican. the democrat is like 2 plus 2 equals 4 and the republicans are like 2 plus 2 equals i hate women or something. the newscaster will be like i guess we'll never know. no, you do know. you have computers and staff. google it and tell me which one is right and who is lying. that was a moment where she said he is lying. i think everyone watching was like oh, this is what journalists can do because th
